Warmer days but windy ways

The last couple days have been a bit warmer outside but this time of the year when the warmer weather comes so does the windy conditions.  Well that did not stop us from getting out there to try and pick up some walleyes in the clean water conditions.  

Thursday Robert Lampman, Marty, Brian and I met at Everett's resort and no surprise to us the ramps were wide open for us .  We are some spoiled fishermen on pool 4 to fish open water in January.   We fished several areas today and getting quite a few walleyes and saugers to cooperate.   We mainly fished in water depths from 14 to 23 feet today. We used ringworms, minnow, and movies to catch our fish today.   Awesome days gentlemen and look forward to our next outing. 

Friday, I met Mike and Rick around noon,  we set out and try to fish in the windy conditions.  After a few adjustments and technique change we started to put some fish into the boat.  Most of our fish today came out of 23 foot of water.  The flow today was a little quicker than the day before.  Which on pool 4 makes a difference on where the walleyes sit.

Mike had biggest walleye today,  he got himself a tanker on his first ever fishing trip on the mighty Mississippi River . What a catch on your first time out there mike.  The bite was a little tougher today with the windy conditions but at the end of the day the boys had some walleyes and saugers for the frying pan.  Great time gentlemen and I can't wait to take you out again in the future.  

Good luck out there guys and gals.!!!!!!!
